View Full Version : Paint scheme's as tga files?
07-02-2007, 06:08 PM
Can you put paint scheme's in the import/export folder as a tga and use it
that a way or is it strickly psp or psd. Cause i do have a file converter?
Probably a dumb ?

The only file types the game will import/export are tga and bmp files.

You want to do what now? You want to save a psd/psp file as a tga? Or do you want to go from a tga file to a psd/psp layered file?
PSD/PSP layered -> TGA = save as a different file type
TGA -> PSD/PSP layered = impossible

you can put anything in there, but only bmps and tgas will show up in the game.

LOL....is there any paint scheme or paint bases that are TGA already,
or are they all PSP and PSD and can i convert a PSP or PSD into a TGA
and will i be able to use it in the paint shop?

Most everything is either already PSD/PSP files or car files. Just start downloading stuff and you'll see what they are.
Short answer, yes, you can save the PSD/PSP files into TGA or BMP files for use in the in-game paint shop. However, you cannot paint or edit anything with a resolution larger than 512 x 512 pixels.

Cool bro thanks for the info all i need now is to purchace a file
converter program, i did get a trial version from reasoft.com, its called
ReaConverter:light, standard or pro versions. The standard ver is $49.95 and does a :cen: load of stuff the light ver doesn't convert
to TGA.format that sucks it's only $24.95....LOL :beer: :)

Why not consider purchasing something like Paint Shop Pro, Photoshop, or even just downloading the GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) (free). They're image editing programs that can save files out in a variety of formats, including .tga.

IrfanView (http://www.irfanview.com/) works perfectly to save just about any type file as anything you need. And its free. I would have to say it is the most useful program Ive ever downloaded.

thousand. I downloaded a trial version of CORAL DRAW and i was stumped on how to use it i got a hi rez temp to load but don't know what
all those options do..... :jawdrop: all i can say is i give a :cen: load of
"RESPECT" to you guy's who do up these cars for the greatist game on the earth i hope to do up some of my own one day. What i know about

DOwnload paintshop Pro. It's far easier to work with than Photoshop! Photoshop is a better program, I just never had the time to learn it!

I paid $90 for my PSP7 in 2001. No idea what programs go for now, but wouldn't think to try the Paint Shop within the game. Hope you come up with something that works for ya. And, don't be intimidated. For the most basic painting stuff, it's easy to pick up. I've never read the manual and do alright just experimenting.

512 by 512 saved as TGA put it in the folder and bingo was his name o !!!
